Gianmarco Pinciroli, Signification and power. Notes on Roland Barthes


Barthes’ reflection on language and power is the secret thread that links his thirty-year researches in the most different fields of signification: from literature to fashion, a relentless criticism arises toward the creation of the false “naturalness” of sense. The result of his deconstructive work acquires– today more than ever before – the meaning of a warning about all the seemingly unquestionable dogmas of communication.
